Open Meets


An Open Meet is a competition where swimmers aged 9 years and above enter as individuals, representing the club, to compete against others swimmers from various clubs across the country. Open Meets are open to all swimmers who meet the set criteria known as 'Promoter’s Conditions.' We encourage all of our swimmers to enter a minimum of 3 open meets each year. The Head Coach will notify the swimmer when they reach the set criteria for each competition to whether they can enter and times achieved.

Open meets can be either age on day of gala (or last day if over more than one day) or age at 31st December.


We operate the 'Vanessa Knight Memorial Open Meet' each year, which is a Category 3 licensed level meet and is open to entries both internally and to external club entries.

Licensed Open Meets & Qualifying Times 

To enter County, National or British Championships, swimmers have to achieve the minimum qualifying time within a set given date. Times achieved at licences meets are known as 'licensed times' these can be found on Swim Englands website. To find your Individual rankings Click Here.
